More about this marker. The building has been renovated as a hotel and is now called The Wyman. - Springing from a rich trove of history in the heart of the San Juan Range of Southwest Colorado, The Wyman Hotel is a contemporary bastion in the Silverton community. Following a successful career in the pack mule freight business, Louis Wyman built The Wyman Building in 1902 on the same site where his old freighting office had been. The first floor included a mercantile, a gas station, and even housed the town trolly. The second floor of the building was originally designed as a ballroom and lodge hall, with an adjoining banquet room. Both halls were well furnished and equipped with anterooms as well as a lounge for the ladies. For many years, the top floor was busy with social activities almost every night. The second floor also included two three room office suites occupied by a dentist's office (modern-day Room 7) and mining company headquarters. Over the following century, the building has been lovingly cared for by multiple owners for a multitude of purposes, and we are excited to share the history of this building with you today as The Wyman Hotel.
